Introducing “Motif della Sardegna”
This brand NEW pattern to hit the Etsy store today is very near and dear to me. This motif was based off of the traditional and classic Sardinian designs appearing in many of the woven tapestries of Sardinia, Italy… the island in the mediterranean… land that I have come to love.
Backstory: when I first met my husband, he told me he is from the Italian island of Sardinia. A place I had never heard of. When we first visited Sardinia (our little one was only 9 months old), I quickly fell in love with the island, it’s culture, the people, and the artistry and talents of the inhabitants which prompted a decision to move here! They exhibited a zest for life and family, and capture so much of their heritage and culture in the many artisan renderings of which they have passed the knowledge of creation through the generations. One very celebrated art form is the woven tapestry. Nearly all of them contain this central flower-style motif with exterior embellishing patterns.
I have rendered my version of this motif paying my homage to the land I have come to love. I added flourishes and bushier stalks, an offset frame element, and little nuances that make the pattern unique to my own design visions while trying not to stray too much from the original inspiration of the traditional motif. And now you can stitch it too!
This is not a small pattern… It’s rather large and repetitive, but I feel that you will greatly enjoy it and adore it while hanging in your home for years to come.
If you’ve never heard of our wonderful island in the mediterranean, I strongly encourage you to find us… Research us… You’ll fall in love with the culture and the craftsmanship of these great people too!
